Entertainment Reviews:

Option - Nov.-Dec./92, p.102
"...hot-wired, bluesy rockabilly...as fiery and alive as any 'modern' record you might put it up against. Alvin is as smoking on the 6-string as he's ever been, and Burgess' weathered vocals are in fine form..."
Stereo Review (12/92, p.99) - "...usually smokin', and right on target with Burgess's defining style...finds him very much in the groove...A keeper..."

Sonny Burgess was part of rockabilly's first generation, recording for Sun Records in the 1950s, but even in the '90s he was still capable of tearing it up. This '92 recording shows a sexagenarian Burgess still breathing fire on hardcore rockabilly tracks where he's ably backed by--among others--guitarist Dave Alvin, formerly of the Blasters. There's no audible softening of Burgess's hard-driving sound here, just raw rock & roll in its purest form.
